Verse 1

Now you told me the day before

That you wanted to ask me something serious.

And I said, I know you're joking.

But the next day, you asked me if there could be an us.

Oh, my, oh, my, finally you're putting your heart on the line.

And right when I was about to be on cloud nine.

You said you were joking.

Chorus

What? You were just joking?

And there I was choking

On my tears of joy.

He finally asked, oh, boy, oh, boy.

I should have known,

I should have known.

I should have known it was too good to be true.

I should have known better than to believe in you.

Verse 2

So I put on Taylor Swift again.

Yeah, I knew you were trouble right when we met.

Silly me, keeping up my hope!

Thinking, maybe we'll be together by some twist of fate.

Oh, my, oh, my, maybe someday he will end up being mine.

And right when I was about to be on cloud nine.

You said you weren't serious.

Chorus

What? You were just joking?

And there I was choking

On my tears of joy.

He finally asked, oh, boy, oh, boy.

I should have known,

I should have known.

I should have known it was too good to be true.

I should have known better than to believe in

Bridge

You and your words that try to manipulate me

Into staying on your hook, but I can finally see

That if I hold on, you'll let go,

And now I know

That it's time for me to run away

And today is the day.

Chorus

Because you were just joking.

And there I was choking

On my tears of joy.

He finally asked, oh, boy, oh, boy.

I should have known,

I should have known.

I should have known it was too good to be true.

I should have known better than to believe in you.

Outro

I should have known that all I am is a joke to you.

I should have known better way before, but now, I do.
